Half a millennium ago a revival happened.  It became known as "the reformation" as the Gospel was recovered, sinners were saved, and churches were formed. It began as a protest and exploded into a full-blown movement. This October, 500 years later, central truths of the reformation will be explored. 

What does a church protest, which happened 500 years ago, have to do with inner city Baltimore in 2017? 

ONE HOPE Conference is a brand new, biennial conference celebrating the Gospel in Baltimore. Every two years, urban theologians and practitioners will tackle one of the foundational truths which came out of the reformation, the five "solas," and explore its meaning and relevance for our city.

This first year, our theme is "Sola Scriptura."  What is Sola Scriptura? It simply means that all which is needed for faith and salvation is found within the pages of Scripture.  Why does it matter?  Join us.


Montrel Haygood: Why the Bible?

Joel Kurz: Is the Bible True?

Kevin Smith: Is the Bible Enough?

Shai Linne: Is the Bible Needed?

Thabiti Anyabwile: Is the Bible our Authority?

Vision trips are great way to see what ministry at ONE HOPE looks like on a daily basis. Consider coming on a five-day vision trip to Baltimore where you will experience life with Garden Church Members, ONE HOPE Interns, visit future church planting sites and pray with us for the work the Lord is doing.
